Wow. I haven't checked-in for awhile. I see that things are going down the crapper again. I'd hate to be a newcomer trying to sort through the grade-school playground BS on here.

Finally getting around to rebuilding mine after augering it in at top speed during a full-collective, high-banked, FFF circuit while I was up north a few weeks back. I had mentioned that I'd try to shoot some video up there, but that was not to be, as I augered it in on the first evening!

A bunch of us were hanging out at my friend's new RC field. It was a bit late in the evening & the light wasn't the best - but I decided to fly anyway. I did some basic aerobatics & flew a few FFF circuits - each one faster than the last. The light was fading fast. But of course, I had to get in just one more flight - even though I had already lost the bird in the shadows a few times when flying below the treeline.

Famous last words: "Hey guys - watch this!"

I took her up for a balls-to-the-wall FFF circuit - despite the rapidly waning light. Everything was going just fine until I flew below the treeline again at the far end of my circuit. I lost the bird completely in the shadows while flying a full-bore circle at a 60-70 degree bank-angle. I quickly realized that the old tried & true fixed-wing method of following the ship through until it becomes visible again wasn't going to work on a heli during an aggressive, steeply-banked FFF turn. So I hit TH & bailed. The bird went in at high speed with a loud thunk!

The damage is surprisingly light, given the high speed & angle of arrival. Broke the ball on one tail grip & the driveline feels a bit gritty in spots when rotating it with the motor disengaged. The gears look fine, however. Might be a bent TT and/or tailshaft. Also broke the tail fin. Other than that, the bird seems to be fine. Didn't even bend the FS. Must have been doing somewhere between 30-40 MPH when it hit. Tough bird!

Time to break out the magnifier light & tear this puppy down!

Put a DS35 servo in place of the stock.. One guy on HF had 600 flights on his DS35 before it went out. I am using it also and will not go back to the linear servo from HH.

I'd love to see Reynaldo's solution for shoehorning a DS35 as a pitch servo in between the frame halves. It has been done, though, with replacing linear servos (all of them) with rotary servos.

The DS 35 works for the tail easily enough, but not for the pitch (right cyclic)servo. Someone on here has mentioned someone successfully putting the DS35's on for the cyclic, but I haven't seen a link to a build thread on it. It would be interesting to get one and experiment though. Especially if I can get the board and servo combination to work on a trex 250.

I saw that link but I thought you were referring to another person who also did this mod but differently.

He's not figured out the elevator servo yet I see. LOL I think I would just put everything into a 250GT frame and call it good.

Thanks

Like to thank EVERYBODY for their input to my hobby shop testing post.

I will have one run up (above 50%) throttle, and check for tail vibrations.
